Withings will release its new generation of ScanWtach this fall. The most optimized, the ScanWatch 2, will be able to permanently record body temperature, in addition to monitoring sleep, cardiovascular health and any other physical activity. It now also incorporates three new parameters: respiratory rate, variations in heart rate during sleep and monitoring of the menstrual cycle, and has a 30-day battery life.

This fall will release the first connected watch capable of monitoring the evolution of the body temperature of the person wearing it 24 hours a day. Far from being a gadget, this novelty can help many sick people, but also athletes or even certain professionals.
The French manufacturer Withings, a true reference in connected health, has just presented its new range of ScanWatch watches, capable of measuring your temperature 24/7, a great first. Until then, this functionality was quite limited. The reference in terms of connected watch, the Apple Watch, for example, only offers to measure it at night, as part of “sleep monitoring”. However, having permanent access to your temperature from your connected watch can be a great help for many people.
Three new features at your fingertips
Kept on the wrist, this watch will be able to continuously measure, thanks to its sensors, body temperature, day and night, as well as the variation in heart rate, respiratory rate and sleep cycles. Women can, for their part, inform and follow their menstrual cycles directly on their connected watch.
This feature is not trivial, because a lot of people theoretically need to know their body temperature at all times. This is particularly the case for people suffering from chronic or autoimmune diseases, but also from endocrine disorders, such as diabetes or hypothyroidism. In general, it can also be used for any frail elderly person. In their case, any sudden change in temperature could lead to complications.
In addition to sick people, this continuous temperature measurement can also be useful for people who regularly practice intense physical activity, but also for all those who work in extreme conditions, in very hot or conversely cold places. The ScanWatch Light and ScanWatch 2 will be available in October 2023 from 250 and 350 euros respectively.
